Jazz has been a busy gal sewing and finishing up a storm!!
“Hello, lovelies. Remember this sweet Little Bear quilt I made from the kit sent to me by Celesta P, her friend Yvonne, and their church quilting group?
It made up so effortlessly that I used it as inspiration for several more quilts. I used the scraps from it to make this little quilt (33â€ x 33â€).
Other flannel pieces came from… Janie W. of Edmond, Oklahoma, Anonymous. And my stash. Binding and back from Becky M. of Alaska and Texas. I love this rich, brown flannel plaid! Iâ€™ve used it in many quilts.
Check out this spaceman quilt! It was created with flannels from Janie W. of Edmond, Oklahoma, Missy R. from Gainesville, Florida, Anonymous in Idaho; Minky from Andee B. of Hinesville, Georgia; light green binding back from Jo. Bright green flannel back from Mari D. from Little Rock, Arkansas. It also finished at 33â€ x 33â€.
Being one myself, I am quite taken with this â€œI (love) Abuelaâ€ flannel that came from Anonymous in a big box of flannels quite a while ago. The surrounding flannels were gifts of several donors including Missy R, Janie W, and Anonymous in Idaho. The back decorated with crowns was from Jo, and I thought it most appropriate since I know from personal experience how abuelas (grammas) and babies consider each other to be pure royalty. This one is 44â€ x 40â€.
Hereâ€™s another, similar but smaller (30â€ square) Abuela quilt with red and blue Minky (from an extravagantly generous giver from West Houston who admires Jo), yellow flannel, and red Minky from my stash on the back. 30 x 30â€. Batting for all the above quilts was supplied by Jo.
Bonnie H. and the original Eskimo Pies are both from Onawa, Iowa, and she has been a generous donor. She recently sent me a box of beautiful yardage, a panel, a My Little Pony quilt top, and these squares. First thing, I stitched the squares into a baby quilt (32â€ x 32â€). Sashing and binding mine; back is a thick, soft flannel, a light pink and purple wash from Dorothy S, Martinsburg, West Virginia. She sent it about a year ago. The flannel is so sumptuous that I didnâ€™t even need to bat it.
Here is the My Little Pony quilt Bonnie sent, also backed with Dorothyâ€™s lush flannel. Tied with rose DMC donated by Nelle B, from Stillwater, Oklahoma about a year ago, and bound with pink flannel from Missy R. Itâ€™s 34â€ x 38â€, perfect for a new baby girl.
Iâ€™m still working on the embroidery panels you sent, Jo, and kits from Holly M. of Brazil, Indiana, and Bonnie H. I still have kits from the Cresco ladies, Susan M. from Alvin (a Houston suburb) Texas, and Nina H. from St. Louis, Missouri to do. If you donâ€™t see the evidence of my gratitude itâ€™s because itâ€™s still in progress. But my appreciativeness is ongoing. All these quilts are given to the newborn nursery at Ben Taub Hospital in the Houston, Texas Medical Center.”
That’s what I have from Jazz for you today. Doesn’t she do an amazing job of keeping track of it all AND finishing quilts? I love that Jazz is part of the team of quilt finishers. Great job Jazz!! Many thanks to those who donated!!
